This Sh** Is Bananas

SOOOO…I love banana bread, I mean, I really love banana bread.

I spent my party of a Sunday barefoot in the kitchen…cooking, baking and experimenting with recipes.

I love trying out healthy recipes on my husband to determine if he can tell if the recipe is healthy or not. This recipe is a winner, as it tastes just like the old fashion banana bread that we all love, but it’s made with healthier ingredients. Most versions have refined sugar and white flour, this recipe calls for a small amount of 100% maple syrup and coconut flour.

There are just some days when you feel like what you need is a few carbs.  Well, I’ve got you covered here!
